The Peace Studies Center is located on the edge of a former battlefield. An exceptionally bloody battle took place here in 1553. Analogous to the well-known motto "swords to ploughshares" we redesign this to "battlefields to playing fields". The participants of the work camp will design elements of this playing field and build an information board. Anyone who appreciates creative work can work on a multi-part mural under expert guidance, which is to be developed on the topics of climate justice and fair trade.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The accommodation for the participants is offered in rooms with four beds each. There are bed sheets available. Food is prepared together in the kitchen of the seminar house.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The Peace Center is at the verge of a village with about 2500 inhabitants. Sievershausen lies 30 kilometers east of the Lower Saxony provincial capital Hanover on the freeway to Berlin.For the leisure time, the group can use facilities of the seminar house and make an excursion to Hannover or Braunschweig.


The Peace Studies Center in Sievershausen (Antikriegswerkstatt Sievershausen) was established in the premises of the Sievershausen Lutheran Church community more than 50 years ago. During that time, the Vietnam War escalated. Nowadays there are several buildings, including a guesthouse and the well-known "Anti-War House" with an assembly hall for our events, located in a park-like area along with a church older than 1000 years on the edge of the village. The peace center shows through its diverse program, that peace work has political, historical, educational and cultural aspects. Throughout the year one can visit exhibitions, author readings, lectures and many cultural events. The peace education offers of the seminar area include teaching units, trainings for school classes and church groups on current and historical topics.


According to the current regulations, we can only accept volunteers, who are either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson, Novavax) or recovered (date of infection must be max 180 days old). We will make tests in the beginning and during the workcamp.
